  • Next-Gen Jeep Cherokee Unveiled Ahead Of 2018 Detroit Auto Show Debut

At the recent Los Angeles Auto Show, Mike Manley, who heads Jeep and Ram for Fiat Chrysler, said Cherokee "is really important for the brand.because it enters the biggest SUV segment in the world, and we'll build on the progress that we made with today's Cherokee". As one of the most popular Jeep models during its 27-year run prior to its demise in 2001, the Cherokee had plenty of enthusiasts excited about its triumphant return.

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee features a completely restyled front end that is less polarizing, but also a bit less distinct. The front fascia has been reworked to follow with the family lineage - gone are the awkward, squinty LED daytime running lights, and the lower grille and bumper have been cleaned up to reflect a more sophisticated look. The result is a more conventional nose that has a closer familial resemblance to other Jeeps such as the Compass and Grand Cherokee. Jeep says that the updated SUV 'boasts a new, authentic and premium design, along with fuel-efficient powertrain options'.

Wind chill beneath zero Tuesday; snow coming
The National Weather Service issued the winter storm watch for Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Monroe, Livingston, Lenawee, St. After about 1.5 inches of snow fell over the weekend in Metro Detroit , meteorologists said snow will continue into Tuesday.


The refreshed Cherokee will debut to the media in January at the 2019 Detroit auto show.

Other than a few pictures, there aren't a whole lot of details to run on. There seem to be revisions to the metallic trim, and a new design around the base of the transmission shifter. We previously learned that, aside from the new face, the 2019 Cherokee will receive the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that's good for 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, at least in the new Wrangler. This isn't necessarily a bad thing given the rest of the design wasn't much of an issue prior.
